First time on top deck. Watched the final women’s bb game. Margarita pizza and Cesar salad were delicious and sharable. White wine cold and crisp but purchased a tad expensive for amount served. Professional staff all friendly and appropriately responsive.

Absolutely enjoyed my dining experience. It was my first time at Puesto. I tried the short rib taco at Petco park and knew I had to visit the store front location. All the tacos that I tried were delicious (short rib, chicken adobada, tamarindo shrimp), mango margarita, and nogada guacamole, chips and salsa. I was completely blown away by the choco flan! Special shout out to the staff and service. They were so attentive and friendly. All around great experience and cannot wait to go back for Taco Tuesday. My friends all raved about my restaurant pick and look forward to returning as well. 10/10! Thank you Puesto!!!

About the restaurant
Discovering Italy by way of La Jolla, Marisi focuses on Italian hearth cooking with an emphasis on handmade pastas, fine wine and classic cocktails. The menu celebrates the rich diversity of cuisine from across Italy, fashioned in a time-honored tradition of handmade all day, every day. A dream that lives between the Italian and La Jolla coasts, suspended between tides instead of time — a mood more than a plot. A visit that feels a lot like coming home, if home was a warm, charming villa off the Amalfi coast. Marisi is a taste of something you want to remember. We hope you love it.

About the restaurant
Coco Maya is inspired by exploring the history of the Islands and Latin American regions of the Caribbean Ocean.

The dishes are a contemporary link from the past to the present using local produce and Seafood guided by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch. European influence in flavor and cooking techniques are echoed throughout the menu with the core of the kitchen coming from the Coal Fired Josper Oven. Hints of the Ocean, smoke, and char will reverberate through all the dishes.

A daily Brunch Menu is centered around composed Latin American and Caribbean breakfast dishes with rotating pastries and a unique Sandwich called Bokit (a stuffed fry bread from the French Islands of Guadeloupe).

Snacks vary from a simple play on Chex Mix to a fun tableside version of a Raclette queso fundido.

Dinner transitions into a more select atmosphere with the food offering a variety of plant-based small plates and large format proteins cooked over coals
